Poggio Vistabella stands on a magnificent natural terrace facing the beautiful hills of Umbria and Tuscany, in a unique borderland characterised by a rich culture of good living and good food, close to Lake Trasimeno, Montepulciano and Cortona. This welcoming country house, completely air-conditioned, set within a vast farm estate and built with the bricks that have been produced in this area for centuries, relates a long story of love for the land and its quality produce, like wine and olive oil. The heart of the house is the spacious living area where you can all relax or cook together in the beautiful kitchen, with centre island, that faces out onto the silent garden, a green island ideal for children with seating areas and completed by the beautiful pool in its super panoramic position. Poggio Vistabella is a buen ritiro for those seeking tranquillity in the setting of one of the best-loved country areas in the world, in the "heart" of Etruscan Tuscany and of medieval and Renaissance towns and landscapes, all still prefectly preserved; an excellent starting point for visiting places full of charm like Siena and the Val d'Orcia, Perugia and Assisi. For those seeking total relaxation, the most renowned spa centres of Tuscany are within easy reach: San Casciano dei Bagni, Chianciano, Rapolano and Bagno Vignoni. The proximity to the railway station in Chiusi and the high-speed line will allow you to visit Florence and Rome where you can spend a whole day. Services, restaurants and supermarkets are in Castiglione del Lago, a lively little town just 5 minutes away by car.
The house has two floors connected by external stairs. The main entrance on the ground floor leads into the living area, a large open-plan area, enlivened by arched openings, with seating area with satellite TV, dining table and kitchen with practical central island and direct access out to the pergola with the external dining area. This floor is completed by two double bedrooms (one with 1.50 m bed) served by two bathrooms with shower (in one of which is a washing machine). On the top floor is a small panoramic terrace with sitting room which then leads into the house with two double bedrooms (one with 1.50 m wide bed) and a twin bedroom with joinable beds, served by a bathroom with shower (and washing machine) and a bathroom with tub.
Poggio Vistabella is set within a farm estate of about 9 hectares consisting of arable land, vines and olives. Surrounding the house is a well-kept park for the guests' sole use, mostly fenced and characterised by large lawn areas enlivened by pots of flowers, lavender bushes, olives, herbs and local trees. Close to the house exits are a seating area with large umbrella and a pergola with dining table (with a barbecue available). The property, three quarters of which is fenced-in, is reached through an automatic gate beyond which is the parking area close to the house entrances.Please notice that photos are taken in spring, therefore flower blossoming, and the colours of the gardens' grass could be different at the moment of your arrival at the villa.
Open from the last Saturday of April until the first Saturday in October, the fenced-in pool lies in a stupendous corner of the property, with a fantastic view and in a discreet position, on terracing at a lower level with respect to the house and is reached down a ramp of steps. The rectangular pool, with stone border, PVC lining and Roman steps, measures 5 x 10 m with the depth ranging from 1.20 to 1.50 m. It has salt purification and a solar shower. The stone-paved sunbathing area stretches onto a vast lawn area provided with sunbeds, little tables, gazebo and umbrellas.
